 COLUMBIA, PA — This video is being viewed by a lot of people on Facebook this afternoon.
According to Lancaster Online a Confederate flag displayed on pick-up truck started a fight in Columbia yesterday afternoon.
And as you can see that fight drew a crowd.
The paper reports several departments responded to calm the crowd shutting down a block of Walnut Street.
Mayor Leo Lutz said the truck was moved out of the block and the owner taken to the police station.
The Confederate flag has been in the news a lot this summer.
South Carolina and Alabama removed the flag from their state house after a gunman killed 9 African Americans at a Charleston church.
The white suspect in the Charleston case had posed with the Confederate symbol.
